New Policy on Academic Accommodations for Reasons of Faith and Conscience

Last Spring the Occidental faculty voted on and passed the new policy for Academic Accommodations for Reasons of Faith and Conscience. This policy gives students the ability to have two days of excused absences a year for reasons of faith or conscience, for example religious holidays, cultural holidays, etc. This means that Jewish students on campus can get excused absences for up to two holidays that fall on class days when they follow the outlined procedure. For more information on the policy or how to use it or for more examples of how this policy can be used, check out Oxy’s Office of Religious and Spiritual Life website!
